    Yep, I'll be there, and looking forward to it. From the Detroit suburbs, it's only a 2-1/2 hour trek. I was surprised to see there are still seats available - it sounds like a great camp.

    I’ll be there too. Heading down from Boyne City as a returning camper. Great location and instructors.

    Fantastic! Can't wait to meet everybody. I'll be easy to find - I'll be carrying the mandolin in my avatar. I did download the class materials ... holy sh*t, there's a lot there to keep you busy!

    Rumor has it only 8 spots left. If you were on the fence, get registered!

    Btw, I was notified today that there is a similar but confusing camp at a similar and confusing time to Great Lakes Music Camp....

    Brian Oberlin is also running a mandolin camp, called "Great Lakes Mandolin Camp" in just a couple of weeks.

    This thread is NOT about that camp

    The folks at GLMC sent out an email with a small selection of Common Tunes that they are encouraging folks to get familiar with before the camp. They sent out a pdf of the following tunes, that our good friend Baron happens to have a few available at MandoLessons:

    Bill Chetham
    Cherokee Shuffle
    St. Anne's Reel
    Whiskey Before Breakfast

    Here are some neat Youtube links of the other tunes if you are curious:

    Josie-O
    Lonesome Moonlight Waltz
    Midnight On The Water

    Thought this might be helpful to those of you going if you aren't familiar with all of these songs.

    Cheers!

    Joe--I look forward to meeting you!

    I'm going to be bringing my photography gear along and should have an area set up to do some mando-graphy. Looking for unique instruments to add to our archives so if you'd like some photos of your favorite mandolin just bring it along!
